That’s weird, I was just thinking about this yesterday. I’m the same (and I have a decent collection of Okko too). For me, I think the fact that there’s a limited number available, combined with the pleasure of hunting down and aquiring the items. Sometimes they’re cheaper, but sometimes they’re the opposite.

My biggest project along these lines was Confrontation. I’ve spent a hell of a lot on that game, but it was a very satisfying when I discovered some very rare unit or figure that was hard to find and added it to my collection. It’s been a while since I bought anything for it, but I imagine figures are even more rare and expensive these days. Buying two unit of whampyrs for my Ram army was crazy money!

Oh, there’s another thing I love about this kind of obsession, especially related to Confrontation–I get a lot of satisfaction out of rescuing old figures (and games) from the limbo of ebay and adding them to a well-painted, carefully maintained collection.

So as you can see, you’re not alone in this regard!
